Serotonergic fibers broadly innervate the thalamus and may influence the sleep wake cycle, attention, and other processes through modulation of neurons in this structure. However, the actions of serotonin in the dorsal thalamus have been investigated in detail only in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus. In the present study, we examined the action of serotonin in several different regions of the ferret dorsal thalamus, including the associative nuclei, using the in vitro slice preparation… CONTINUE READING
